    Shannon and I obtained a not guilty verdict after trial on a first degree felony charge of sale of cocaine within 1000 feet of a convenience store. Shannon is the most intelligent, dedicated and thoughtful attorney I have ever had the opportunity to work with. I would recommend her to my friends or family without hesitation.
